Hope this can help. :D

Pauldrons were colored pieces of padded material worn by some Clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, and later by Stormtroopers of the Imperial Armed Forces. The pauldron designated either a specific rank or an area of expertise. Occasionally, during times of internal struggle within the Galactic Empire, the colors and markings on pauldrons were used to signify allegiance to specific leaders or factions.

ARC Troopers mostly wore pauldrons on the left shoulder. Clone trooper commanders would occasionally don a pauldron as a sign of rank, and would allow ranking clone officers to wear them if they earned it in the line of duty. Many, if not most, Clone Marshal Commanders would wear a pauldron not only as a sign of rank but also denoting their ARC training.

The later Stormtrooper units of the Galactic Empire of would wear pauldrons on the right shoulder. Sandtroopers, Field Troopers, Imperial Marines and Imperial Shock Troopers always wore pauldrons.


Sandtrooper pauldrons designated the following:

Black - Private
White - Sergeant
Orange - Squad Leader

Field Trooper pauldrons designated the following:

Yellow - Rail Detonator equipped Field Trooper
Red - Imperial Repeater Rifle equipped Field Trooper

Imperial Marines and Imperial Shock Trooper pauldrons designated the following:

Orange - The normal color worn by these units. Orange colored pauldron was also standard equipped on the Stormtrooper Backpack

Some regular Stormtrooper units from around 1.5 years ABY had pauldrons that designated the following:

Gray - Bombardier
Yellow - Rifleman
Red - Medic
Blue - Sniper
Orange - Captain
